Nice image Allan, what are the details? I struggle imaging towards the north because the house, and more importantly the source of lights, is to the north.
The 18th was one of those rare nights; remained clear until I went to bed. I had two mounts going - LX200 guided into 60D and the 450D with the 18-55mm for wide field .
